The municipality’s finance committee has recommended a tax increase and a number of cost-cutting measures. On Monday, council considered the five recommendations. The committee has recommended a tax increase of one per cent, effective January 2012, with additional revenues applied to capital reserves. Increasing taxes by one per cent will bring in an

additional $6,000. The committee also recommended council continue with an acting administrator and review the administrator’s role in January, 2013. Municipal treasurer Ken Ostraat has been assuming the administrator’s duties since the departure of Don DeGagne from the administrator’s position last month. Instead of waiting until January 2013 to review the position, council will

re-examine hiring for the position every three months. “It takes a considerable amount of time to find the right person,” said Coun. Peter Waterman. Coun. Lloyd Christopherson, Coun. Bruce Halquist and Coun. Martin Van Alphen opposed this resolution, preferring to stay with the finance committee’s recommendation to review the position next January. Another recommenda-

tion to implement a hiring freeze was also considered. The committee has recommended a complete hiring freeze, with any new position or rehiring approved by council. Several on council were concerned with the recommendation to bring all rehiring before council. Council passed a resolution to implement a hiring freeze for new positions, but not for rehiring to fill positions which become vacant.

Other recommendations from the committee include requiring funding for multi-use trail projects to come from grants and fundraising campaigns rather than using municipal funds and to contribute $10,000 to Community Futures for the Economic Gardening Project for 2012, provided contributions are also made by the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen and surrounding municipalities.

Teachers held a demonstration on Rosedale Avenue in front of Summerland Secondary School on Monday afternoon. Teachers in the school district are frustrated at the lack of progress in an ongoing dispute between the province and the 41,000 B.C. teachers.

Eight names on chamber ballot by John Arendt There will be some new faces on the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism board for the coming year. Three current board members and five new members will be on the ballot for the five vacant positions.

Current board members who are running for a second term are Thor Clausen, Bruce Charneski and John Lathey. New members are Maged Said, Brett DeWitt, Darin Fair, Jason Embree and Andre Roman. The positions are for two-year terms. Two other board members, Arlene Fenrich and Connie Denesiuk are

continuing their terms and are not up for reelection. Lisa Jaager, manager of the chamber, said the interest in the board is an improvement from recent years when it was sometimes difficult to find enough people to fill the vacant seats. “It’s exciting to see there are so many people

interested in the work SCEDT does,” she said. The chamber will hold an all-candidates’ forum on Tuesday, Lisa March 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Jaager the chamber board room at the Visitor

Information Centre, 15600 Hwy. 97. The election will be held at the chamber’s annual general meeting. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, March 13 at the Summerland Seniors’ Drop-in Centre, 9710 Brown St. A reception will be held at 5 p.m. with the meeting beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Montessori School prepares to expand The Summerland Montessori School will be offering Grade 7 beginning this fall and Grade 8 for 2013-2014. “Going to Grade 8 has been a goal of our parents, staff and board for a number of years and we feel the time is right to make this step forward,� said Cal Johnson, head of the school. The location of the Grade 6/7 classroom is currently being finalized by the SOMSS Board of Directors, with facility expansion dependant on student numbers. The Grade 6 to 8 programs will feature 25

per cent French instruction, with all core subjects taught in English. The goal of the program is that students will have the option of joining French Immersion in Grade 9 or going through the regular high school stream, Johnson said. He added that since the school offers daily French instruction starting in pre-Kindergarten classes, many of the students are more advanced in French than other students choosing French Immersion at the Grade 6 level. “By going to Grade 8, we will have continua-

tion of our French program, which we are very confident will give the students the background they need to have success at the high school level,� he said. “We will also offer introductory French programs to students entering our school in later grades in order to prepare them fully for the French Immersion option in Grade 9.� The Summerland Montessori Middle School program will also offer small class sizes, extracurricular sports activities, hockey, drama and music.

Road upgrades planned by John Arendt Improvements are in the plans for Prairie Valley Road in order improve traffic flow and safety. On Feb. 23, the municipality held an open house to show the proposed upgrades. Don Darling, director of public works for Summerland, said the plan may change since it is a conceptual design, not a detail design. The improvements cover the area along Prairie Valley road from Brown Street to Cartwright Avenue. Improvements in the plans include sidewalks and dedicated bicycling lanes. At present, there are sidewalks in some areas but not in all. At Giant’s Head School and Summerland Montessori School, two crosswalks with light controls will be added to improve safety. The road and sidewalk changes will

means some land acquisition will be necessary. The most significant change planned for the road is a roundabout at Prairie Valley Road and Vic-

toria Road South. Darling said there is poor traffic movement at present. At times, cars are lined up at the four-way stop intersection. The oval-shaped

Truck found On Feb. 26 at 5:19 a.m., police received a report that a pickup truck had been stolen from the 6000 block of Canyon View Road. The truck was found shortly afterward, on its side along Victoria Road South. Police are still investigating the incident.

Vehicle hits ditch On Feb. 21 at 1:30 p.m., police were called to a single-vehicle accident on Highway 97 at Sumac Ridge Drive. A 1996 Chevrolet Blazer was in the ditch. Police say the vehicle had been traveling north when the driver changed lanes. Slushy and slippery road conditions are believed to have been a factor in the accident.

Driver uninjured On Feb. 21 at 2:30 p.m., police were called to a single vehicle accident on Highway 97, four kilometres north of Summerland. A 1996 GMC Sonoma pickup truck went out of control in slushy and slippery conditions. The truck crossed two oncoming lanes and crashed into the concrete guards. The driver was not injured.

roundabout is the preferred option for safety, but it requires a significant land acquisition, Darling said. He added that roundabouts have

fewer points of conflict between vehicles and pedestrians than at conventional intersections. The design elements cause drivers to slow down and result in improved safety as a result. Roundabouts also lead to improved and more efficient traffic flow, less pollution and cost savings as signal equipment is not needed. “Simply stated, the roundabout is the best solution for this intersection,” Darling said. Using $600,000 in funding from the gas tax revenue program and $600,000 from development cost charges, the $1.2 million cost could be funded without additional taxes needed. In addition, diversion of a creek would include $500,000 from the Building Canada Fund Flood Protection Program and $250,000 from capital out of revenue, for a total of $750,000.

Tightening a budget The recommendations from the finance committee call for some tough measures for the municipality this year. On Monday, a series of five recommendations came before municipal council. These include a one per cent tax increase, a hiring freeze and a recommendation not to fill the vacant administrator’s position this year. While such measures can minimize tax increases and keep staffing levels low, we wonder whether they are practical measures. A one per cent tax increase brings in just $60,000 a year. When a budget is measured in millions of dollars and when inflation takes its toll, a $60,000 increase seems meagre. The two recommendations on hiring also have some disturbing implications. At present, municipal treasurer Ken Ostraat is filling in as acting administrator, since that position is now vacant. The treasurer’s role is a big responsibility, as is the administrator’s role. Having one person in both roles for a short period of time is possible, but having one person doing two heavy jobs for a year will take a toll. The hiring freeze recommendation could also have some far-reaching implications. The committee suggested any new position or rehiring for an existing position be approved by council. While it makes sense to consider new positions at the council level, existing positions should be filled when they become open. Otherwise, the work load is added to those who are left. A recent examination into municipal operations showed Summerland is not overstaffed and in some areas staffing could be increased. Summerland already runs a tight ship. The finance committee has made recommendations which need to be considered, but in the end, they may prove too stringent for the municipality.

There are a lot of outstanding people, businesses and organizations in Summerland. On Saturday, some of them were recognized at the 74th annual Summerland Business and Community Excellence Awards. While there is a lot of diversity among the recipients, all have shown a commitment to excellence and a willingness to go beyond what is expected.

Taxing times for B.C. government VICTORIA– Before this week’s budget debate is drowned out by the shouting over the teachers’ dispute, here’s a look at the main points and the arguments unfolding around them. The setting for Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s first budget is what he dreaded when Premier Christy Clark handed him the job. Recovery is painfully slow, with mining and petroleum growing and forest products struggling to hold Tom Fletcher and build on gains made in Asia. This and the $3 billion dismantling of the harmonized sales tax moved Falcon to limit overall spending growth to an average of two per cent for the next three years. That means little or no increase to all areas except health care, education and social assistance. Despite holding the line on public service pay and not replacing 2,000 positions over the next three years, Clark and Falcon had to postpone the elimination of the 2.5-percent small business income tax to get to a balanced budget by 2013. And Falcon has again dangled the prospect of raising general corporate income tax from 10 to 11 per cent, but not until 2014. Business experts applauded the hard line on spending, noting the contrast with Alberta’s big spending and Ontario’s big spending hangover. NDP finance critic Bruce Ral-

ston says Falcon’s two-per-cent spending target is “unrealistic,” and the whole program is motivated mostly by two byelections this year and a general election next year. He said the proposal to raise general business taxes is a repeat of his effort to save the HST, and it won’t happen if the B.C. Liberals win in 2013. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins made the bizarre claim that it’s an NDPstyle “tax and spend” budget,

But land sales are nothing new for governments, and Falcon prefers that to raising taxes. ❏ Carbon tax. The last scheduled increase goes ahead in July, adding another penny on a litre of gasoline, followed by a freeze and review of the whole climate program. Ralston says the climate plan is “in tatters,” along with dozens of other policy areas that are also under review after 11 years of B.C. Liberal rule. NDP leader Adrian Dix vows

Business experts applauded the hard line on spending, noting the contrast with Alberta’s big spending and Ontario’s big spending hangover. and inaccurately accused Falcon of raising taxes on small business. He also joined the NDP chorus of outrage over ICBC, BC Hydro and medical premium increases. Some other hot topics in the budget: ❏ Selling assets. The big one here is B.C.’s liquor wholesaling monopoly, run out of warehouses in Kamloops and Vancouver. Falcon insists the private sector does this kind of work more efficiently, and union contracts will be protected in a bidding process. The NDP argues that selling off a monopoly puts this government cash cow at risk, and points to private retail stores with higher prices and lower wages. The proposed sale of 100 surplus Crown properties has raised cries of “selling the silverware to buy groceries.”

to keep the carbon tax and its offsetting personal income tax cuts, direct carbon tax revenues to transit and rural energy-saving retrofits, and hike the general corporate tax rate from 10 to 12 per cent to pay for it. ❏ HST. Asked what he would have done as finance minister, Ralston suggested getting rid of the HST sooner. Dix continues to misrepresent the HST as solely a transfer to big business, ignoring the small and medium-sized businesses that have a year left to take advantage of input tax credits. Simon Fraser University economist Jon Kesselman has estimated that poor people will be worse off when the HST ends, while the rest of us will see a very small net benefit. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca.

culls Candidates have put their names forward for the upcoming Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism election, but if past response is any indication, voter turnout will be low. There are now more than 800 businesses which are members of the chamber. Only a fraction of them vote in chamber elections. The chamber exists as a voice for Summerland’s business community. It is important for the members of the chamber to get involved in choosing the board and setting the direction.

Phantom of the Opera lauded Dear Editor: The Phantom of the Opera was absolutely fabulous. I got a front row seat dead centre. They had a cast of more than 100 kids, 85 costumes with several costume changes. The singing was good

quality. Three hours just flew by. I loved it, the production sold out every night. If it hadn’t, I’d probably go again. They paid royalties to Phantom of $3,000. Last year or the year before, they did Grease.

This school works very hard. It’s amazing to see the talent in such young people and they have truly remarkable teachers and instructors. The community definitely supports and appreciates their hard work.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who worked, supported and donated to Summerland Secondary High School for the production of Phantom of the Opera. A special thanks

to the creative staff at the high school for having the foresight to take on such a challenge. Students you all deserve to take a bow or curtsy. I look forward to your future plays. Laurinda Dorn Summerland

Bravo to all for production Dear Editor: Congratulations to our Summerland Secondary School with all the students, teachers, helpers and sponsors that brought the production The Phantom of The Opera to Center Stage. The evening was spellbinding for the audience, not a word, no coughs, no cell

phones (thankfully.) It was a superb performance, outstanding singing, beautiful costumes and remarkable sets, it was all first class. The talent, emotion and hardwork was evident in every second. Bravo....a splendid evening of entertainment. Barbara Robson Summerland

Quite a crowd gathered outside the high school to hear the presentations. And while we’re talking presentations, why not attend the Museum’s AGM and enjoy Marilyn and John Topham’s presentation Liberia ’77, the Documentary. Everyone is welcome.

Vote for Summerland’s Hockeyville Dear Editor: I would like to thank the many businesses and Summerlanders that have helped our community qualify for the Hockeyville contest. This national contest has three rounds. The first round is completed.

This Saturday, March 3, on CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada, an announcement will be made on which Canadian communities qualify for the next round. If Summerland qualifies for the next round, it places our community on the

in excess of 200,000 votes. (Google “Hockeyville”). We need all of the community, schools and businesses involved. Social networking (Facebook) is a great way of getting a lot of votes. Getting friends to vote outside the province

Dear Editor: I’m appalled by Public Safety Minister Vic Toews’ comments in the House of Commons last week, when he accused all Canadians who oppose the government’s invasive and warrantless online spying scheme, Bill C-30, of siding with child pornographers. This is rhetoric of the most outrageous kind. In fact, according to a poll by the government’s own privacy commissioner, eight out of 10 Canadians oppose legislation that would grant “authorities” warrantless access to our private information. Even Members of Toews’ own party are against this costly invasion of privacy! I demand that Toews publicly apologize to all Canadians for his comments. They are so typical of those who cunningly use fearful propaganda tactics to strip us of our personal rights and free-

doms. I sincerely hope that the average citizen sees through this shameless ploy. Furthermore, I am calling for the government to amend its online spying legislation so that any new surveillance powers are based on a clear need for new powers, demonstrated by verifiable evidence. I also expect the government to commit to removing the warrantless access provisions in the legislation, insert privacy safeguards and enforcement, and provide a clear plan to offset the estimated $80 million this will cost Canadian families and businesses. I encourage every Canadian to join the more than 112,000 Canadians who have already voiced their opposition to Bill C-30 by signing the Stop Online Spying petiton at www.stopspying.ca.

Chamber prepares for Granfondo Opportunities seen as cycling event returns to area by John Arendt When the Valley First Granfondo Axel Merckx Okanagan cycling event returns to the region this summer, Summerland will be involved. Lisa Jaager, manager of the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism, said the chamber will operate an aid station once again this year. The chamber ran the station last year, for the first Granfondo event. “There’s a lot we can do to really promote the Summerland aid station,” Jaager said. In addition, she said the chamber

will work to promote Summerland with other events and activities. A Friday evening market will be structured to appeal to the cyclists, she said. The Granfondo event will be held July 6 to 8 in the South Okanagan. Last year, more than 2,000 cyclists participated. Jaager said the economic impact of the Granfondo is significant. Last year, eight per cent of the more than 2,000 cyclists stayed in Summerland, many of them for two nights. The average visitor spent $175 a day while in the community. “That’s a potential $56,000 infusion of cash into our economy,” Jaager said.

Library expansion report due in May Summerland branch due for size upgrades The Okanagan Regional Library board of trustees expects a report on expansion plans for the Summerland branch when it next meets in May. At the Feb. 15 meeting of the board, 10 new members joined for their first meet-

ing. The 25-member library board is comprised of representatives from municipal councils, regional districts and First Nations councils throughout the library district. With municipal elections held last November, 10 board positions now have new representatives. Executive members were also

chosen, with Ted Bacigalupo from the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District being elected as chair for his fifth year. Other executive include Carol Zanon, West Kelowna, vice chair; Mark Pendergraft, Okanagan Similkameen Regional District, finance chair; Peter Schierbeck, Peachland,

policy and planning chair; and Marilyn Harkness, Princeton, personnel chair. At the meeting the board also heard an update on construction progress of the new Vernon branch, set to open to the public on May 5. Substantial contributions from Telus, the Vernon Friends of the Library and community members

are being explored that will make the new branch the most technologically upto-date in the ORL system. This grand opening will coincide with the Vernon Friends of the Library Book Sale, held from May 3 to 6 at the Vernon Curling Rink, so book lovers in the North Okanagan will be able to enjoy

a weekend of special activities. Additionally, the board discussed plans for other branches. The Westbank branch will be undergoing renovations later this spring to increase its size from 6,000 square feet to 10,000 square feet, in recognition of the area’s growing population.

The Summerland branch is also due for size upgrades and the board will receive a report on recommendations for next steps in May. Peter Waterman is Summerland council’s representative to the Okanagan Regional Library board and Summerland Friends of the Library. Orv Robson is the alternate.

Thursday, March 1, 2012 Summerland Review

Books challenged by John Arendt

to free expression,” said Caroline McKay, a librarian at the Summerland branch. She said librarians — including those at the Summerland branch — continue to receive requests to pull certain items from the shelves, for a variety of reasons. At times this is because of vulgarity or coarse language in a book while other requests are about the

The freedom to read includes the freedom to choose books some would consider distasteful, librarians with the Okanagan Regional Library say. The week of Feb. 26 to March 3 has been designated Freedom to Read Week in Canada. “It reminds us to remain diligent in protecting our right

treatment of minorities or ethnic groups. McKay said standards for censorship or book challenges have been changing over the years. The most recent targets have been J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, over concerns about witchcraft and sorcery. The TinTin series of books has also come under attack

because of inappropriate stereotypes. Other books and publications which have been challenged in Canada in recent years include Anne Rice’s novel Beauty’s Punishment, the cover image of the September 2010 issue of Rolling Stone and Robert Mapplethorpe’s photographic collection, Certain People: A Book of Portraits.

Censoring reading

The following are a few books which have been challenged in recent years.

Guterson, David, Snow Falling on Cedars

The freedom to read Dianne Broadbent, left, and Caroline McKay of the Summerland Library show some of the books which have been challenged in the past. Freedom to Read Week runs until March 3.

In 2006, the Dufferin-Peel (Ont.) Catholic District School Board removed this novel from the library and a Grade 11 English course over concerns about sexual content. In 2007, a committee created to review the book decided to return the novel to school libraries and keep it in the Grade 11 English course.

In 2002, black parents and teachers in Yarmouth, Digby and Shelburne, N.S. objected to the novel as well as Barbara Smucker’s Underground to Canada and John Ball’s In the Heat of the Night. The director of education of the tri-county school board ordered the withdrawal of the books pending a ruling by the school board, but the order was rescinded and the books were restored. In 1993, a principal in Hamilton, Ont. removed the novel from the Grade 10 core reading list after a complaint from a parent. In 1991, a black community group asked Saint John (N.B.) School District 20 to withdraw this book and Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn from reading lists.

Paterson, Katherine, Bridge to Terabithia In 2006, a parent challenged

Morgan, Allen, Matthew and the Midnight Flood In 2006, a parent challenged this illustrated children’s fantasy book at the Edmonton Public Library. In the story, a stranger visits the boy’s bedroom window in the middle of the night and asks the boy to accompany him. The boy agrees because the invitation sounds like fun. The book was retained and there was no change to its status.

Patterson, Richard North, Silent Witness In 2003, this adult crime novel was challenged at the Toronto Public Library. The objection was the descriptions of rape and murder. The library retained the copy.

Richler, Mordecai, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz This novel has been challenged at several times over the years. In 1982, the Etobicoke (Ont.) Board of Education was asked to ban the book from the

high school curriculum and in 1990 a complaint at the Essex County (Ont.) Board of Education led to the establishment of a written policy to deal with such objections. In both cases, the book was not withdrawn.

Rowling, J.K., Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban In 2000, the Durham (Ont.) Board of Education received numerous complaints about the Harry Potter books being read in classrooms. The concerns came because parents were concerned about wizardry, witchcraft and magic in the books and that these activities are inappropriate for students. The administration withdrew the books from the classroom but left them in school libraries. Several months later, the board rescinded its decision to remove the books.

Wilder, Laura Ingalls, On the Banks of Plum Creek In 1997, two parents in the Fort Garry School Division in Winnipeg complained about the book because of references offensive to aboriginals. A committee of teachers, parents and others in the community prepared to examine the complaint, but the complaint was later withdrawn.

the book at the Ottawa Catholic School Board. The objection was over the words “pervert,” “lordy” and “see-through blouse” in the novel. The principal reported the challenge to the school board’s Derry Bryne Teacher Resource Centre. Librarians at the centre did not proceed with the complaint but suggested the teacher give the student another book to read.

Kinsmen wear anti-bullying pink shirts Summerland Kinsmen have been wearing pink shirts to

show their support for the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs

and their opposition to bullying. The last Wednes-

day of February is known as Anti-Bullying Day, or Pink Shirt

Day in Canada. On this day participants wear pink

Pink to fight bullying Summerland Kinsmen wear bright pink shirts to show their stand against bullying. The pink shirt event was also in support of the Okanagan Girls and Boys Club programs. Standing, left right, are Andre Romain, Kelsey Van Alpen, Stacy Nodge, Dan Salles, Westley Harbinson and Fredrick Numsen. Kneeling are Dan Sawatski and Loren Dean.

to symbolize a stand against bullying. The observance started as a protest against a bullying incident at a Nova Scotia school. Organizers bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after a student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school. Summerland Kinsmen bought antibullying pink shirts and wore them at their meeting this month. They also pledged to wear the shirts to work Feb. 29. Summerland Kinsmen is made up of a variety of different occupations including youth workers, construction laborers, auto body techs, roofers and plumbers. Westley Harbinson, program co-ordinator for Okanagan Boys and Girls Club as well as a Kinsman, said the organizations “support pink shirt day

but make a year long commitment against bullying.” Boys and Girls Club’s programs foster self esteem, social engagement, academic success, inclusion, acceptance, respect for self and others and connection to community — all of which are key elements of bullying prevention. Boys and Girls Clubs participate in Pink Shirt Day because it promotes awareness, understanding and openness about the problem and a shared commitment to a solution. In Summerland, the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs offerafterschool care and Monday night floor hockey for children ages five to 12 at the Harold Simpson Memorial Hall.

I have a complete upper denture and I cannot eat the foods I love, such as steak and apples, without the denture becoming loose when I bite into these harder foods.

A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

Firing your client Sometimes in a Lawyer's career he or she is faced with the rare decision to fire a client. Yes, you read that right, not the client changing counsel but the Lawyer firing a client. In a recent situation on the Prairies, 37 Regina lawyers refused to act for a person because his reputation as a very bad client had preceded him. In that case the person had numerous Lawyers in the past and had gain a reputation as being completely uncontrollable. There are many reasons why a Lawyer may consider this drastic step. Normally, it involves lack of payment of the Lawyer's bill. Lawyer's, just like everyone else have the right to be paid for their services and can refuse to act when they are not paid on a timely basis. Occasionally though the reason for refusing to act stems directly from the client's attitude or conduct. The Law Society of BC has set up rules on how Lawyers disengage themselves from clients when involved in litigation. Timing is very important and preventative measures are in place to ensure that no party is unduly prejudiced by the withdrawal.

Mini Dental Implant Retained Dentures are the perfect option. Even the best denture adhesives can’t compare to the denture stability achieved with mini dental implants. Mini dental implants are designed to help denture wearers laugh, talk and live with comfort and confidence. Mini dental implants were developed to provide greater denture stability for those who:

• • •

Can’t withstand the rigors of full-size implant surgery Don’t have enough bone to allow for full-sized implants to be placed Are seeking a more affordable dental implant option

Mini Dental Implants are a minimally invasive, affordable dental implant procedure that can provide the denture stability you’ve always wanted – without the costs and time associated with full-size implant treatment. Smaller than full-size implants, mini dental implants are inserted to retain and stabilize your lower and upper dentures. Mini Dental Implants:

• • •

Typically do not require an incision in the gums Cost significantly less than full-size implants Can often be placed with a 2 hour appointment

The mini dental implant procedure takes place in our office, with local anesthesia. Typically, the procedure takes only one appointment and can be completed within 2-hours! The Results Because of the minimally invasive nature of the mini dental implant procedure, the implant placement won’t require you to go through a lengthy healing period, we don’t even take your denture away from you. All of the necessary treatment is done in one appointment at the office. Within a few days, you’ll be out and about, enjoying a lunch of your favourite foods, talking with ease, laughing and smiling freely.

Senior basketball girls go to provincials For the first time in more than 20 years, the Summerland Secondary School senior girls basketball team is heading off to the AA Girls Provincial Championships. The Rockets earned the berth on the weekend by placing third in the Okanagan Valley Championships held in Kamloops. Summerland, which was ranked fourth going into the tournament, came out strong in their opening game against fifth-ranked Kalamalka from Vernon. The Rockets dominated the game and finished with a 76-36 victory. Summerland’s scoring was led by Chloe Kennedy with 22, Lauren Antonovitch with 20 and Shannon Parker with 15. Chipping in four each were Amber Lee Watson, Abi Meeten, Sarah Bergstrom and Grace Manders. In Friday’s semi final, Summerland met the top team in the valley, SaHali. The Rockets came out strong against the excellent Kamloops team, which is ranked fourth in the province. Summerland played outstanding defense and held SaHali to 20 points in the first half, posting a midway score of 18-20. SaHali’s strong defense in the

second half slowed the Rockets offense and the Kamloops girls ended up posting a 34-50 victory. Shannon Parker had an incredible game, both defensively and offensively and led the Rockets with 15 points. Sydney Clement had nine, while Meeten and Antonovitch had six each. Saturday morning the Rockets played Okanagan Mission. After a slow start the Rockets took control of the game and went on to a 59-42 victory. Parker was once again the leading scorer as she netted 15 points. Antonovitch had 14, Meeten and Manders eight each, Kennedy seven and Clement six. Summerland showed the strength of their team depth as very tight refereeing saw a lot of girls in foul trouble and all members of the team stepping in to fill important roles in the play. In their final game, Summerland came up against their arch rivals, the Oliver Hornets. The Rockets had recently been defeated by the Hornets in their zone playoff game. The game was an excellent, hard fought battle by both teams and Oliver led Summerland by narrow margins most of

the game. In the final quarter, the Rockets rallied and pulled ahead of Oliver by three points in the final minute. Oliver showed great poise and sank a three pointer in the dying seconds to tie the game and send it into overtime. In the five minute overtime period the lead changed hands several times and in the end the Rockets

Richards tries Olympic courses Continued from Page 16

“In the case of Sochi, the Europa Cup allows the team to get a sensory assimilation of the Russian venue and culture. Familiarity and comfort are key to good performance. We experienced that with the home field advantage in Vancouver and that’s what we’re aiming for in Russia.” Some members of

the Canadian team visited Sochi last year on a familiarization trip, but the Olympic courses were not built at that time. This year, the athletes will actually compete at the 2014 sites. Besides Richards, moguls skiers from Canada attending the Sochi Europa Cup include Kristi Richards, Summer-

scored crucial free throws by Ellen Rutherford and Sydney Clement to put Summerland up by three. The Rockets held on for a 69-66 win. Chloe Kennedy and Lauren Antonovitch had outstanding offensive

and defensive games for Summerland, netting 21 and 20 points respectively. Parker and Clement had eight each and Rutherford four. Oliver, which also earned a berth in the provincials, was led by the incredible

shooting of Ashley McGinnis who had seven three-pointers and a total of 31 points. Emily Jentsch, despite playing limited minutes on an injured ankle, was also outstanding with 14 points.

Parker was recognized for her outstanding play and defensive hustle by being named to the Okanagan Valley allstar team. The Rockets head off to the provincials in Kamloops March 6 to 10.

Jets lose in hard-fought action The MacDonald’s Atom Development team had yet another busy weekend with two games Feb. 18 and 19. On Saturday the team faced off against the top team in their division from the North Okanagan. Enderby’s team entered the game having only lost one game so far this year but were surprised by a scrappy Summerland team that held them to a two-all tie through the first period. Home ice was only

so friendly to the Jets, though, as Enderby wore them down and took the lead in the second period. The final score was 12-5 for North Okanagan but it was one of the best games that the Atom Jets have put together this year. Three lines were in on the scoring for the Jets with Mereno Coco and Mitch Gove each getting an assist and a goal. Jason Scherban also scored for the Jets while Darren Keilty continued to lead from the defensive

side of the ice with a goal and an assist. On Sunday the Jets faced off against their rivals from Penticton. Like all of their games with Penticton this was a classic. The game was rougher than the last few but the result was yet again in question right to the end. The Jets, led again by Gove, carried a two point lead in the third period only to see it evaporate in less than 10 seconds. Following this brief collapse Summerland pressured Penticton

relentlessly but were unable to score and the teams left the ice tied at 7. Duncan Robinson and Spencer Bitte had a goal and an assist each for Summerland while the defense once again played well and saw Stephen Searcy add an assist on one of team captain Gove’s four goals. The Jets have one regular season game remaining and then will head off for the play-off tournament in Merritt on March 9.

Robert Black Owens passed away peacefully February 20, 2012 at the age of 83 years. Robert is survived by his loving wife Paddy; children, Rob of Langley, BC and Janice (David) of Armstrong, BC; two grandchildren; brother Ted of Victoria, BC; as well as many cousins. Robert was a member of the Garnett Valley Gang as “Curly Bob”. He was a true horseman and a cowboy in the truest sense of the word – in his beliefs and how he lived his life. He loved his horses and dogs. His family fondly referred to him as “Cowboy Bob”. A memorial gathering for Bob will be held at a later date. Memorial Tributes in Bob’s memory may be made to the South Okanagan Similkameen Brain Injury Society, #2 - 996 Main St., Penticton, BC V2A 5E4. Condolences may be shared through www.providencefuneralhomes.com.
